You may view some Content on the Site without registering, but as a condition of using most aspects of the Service, you will be required to register for a HelloSponsor account (the “Account”) by providing an email address and selecting a password.

You may also register for an Account by logging into your account (each such account, a “Third Party Account”), with certain third party social networking sites (including, but not limited to, Facebook and LinkedIn) (“SNS”) via our Service, as described below. As part of the functionality of the Service, you may link your Account with your Third Party Accounts, by either: (i) providing your Third Party Account login information to HelloSponsor through the Service; or (ii) allowing HelloSponsor to access your Third Party Account, as is permitted under the terms and conditions of the applicable SNS that govern your use of each Third Party Account. You represent that you are entitled to disclose your Third Party Account login information to HelloSponsor and/or grant HelloSponsor access to your Third Party Account (for the purposes described herein), without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions of the applicable SNS that govern your use of the applicable Third Party Account and without obligating HelloSponsor to pay any fees or making HelloSponsor subject to any usage limitations imposed by such third party service providers. By granting HelloSponsor access to your Third Party Accounts, you understand that HelloSponsor will access, make available and store (if applicable) any content that you have provided to and stored in your Third Party Account (“SNS Content”) so that it is available on and through the Service. Unless otherwise specified in these Terms, all SNS Content, if any, will be considered to be User Submissions for all purposes of these Terms. Depending on the Third Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings of the applicable SNS that you have set in such Third Party Accounts, personally identifiable information that you post to your Third Party Accounts will be available on and through the Service. Please note that if a Third Party Account or associated service becomes unavailable or HelloSponsor’s access to such Third Party Account is terminated by the SNS, then SNS Content will no longer be available on and through the Service. You have the ability to disable the connection between your Account and your Third Party Accounts, at any time, by accessing the “Account Settings” section of the Site. Please note that your relationship with the SNSs associated with your Third Party Account is governed solely by your agreement(s) with such SNS. HelloSponsor makes no effort to review any SNS Content for any purpose, including but not limited to, for accuracy, legality or non-infringement and HelloSponsor is not responsible for any SNS Content.

You shall provide accurate, complete, and updated Account registration information. Failure to do so shall constitute a breach of the Terms of Use, which may result in immediate termination of your Account or such other appropriate penalty as HelloSponsor in its sole discretion may impose. You shall not use any name or term in your Account that (i) is the name of another person, with the intent to impersonate that person; (ii) is subject to any rights of another person, without appropriate authorization; or (iii) is offensive, vulgar, or obscene. The Company reserves the right in its sole discretion to refuse registration of or cancel an Account. You are solely responsible for activity that occurs on your Account and shall be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password for the Site. You shall never use another User Account without the other User’s express permission. You will immediately notify the Company in writing of any unauthorized use of your Account, or other known Account-related security breach.

Use of the Service, and in particular registration for an Account, may be done only be individuals who are at least 18 years old (and at least the legal age in your jurisdiction). You represent and warrant that if you are an individual, you are at least 18 years old and of legal age in your jurisdiction to form a binding contract, and that all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful. The Company may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the Service (or to recognize the validity of an Account) to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time.

Events and Sponsors

Events may create a Listing by submitting a potential Listing through the Service to HelloSponsor. HelloSponsor will review Listings submitted by Events and may, at HelloSponsor’s sole discretion, modify, post or reject the Listing. However, the presence of a Listing on the Service does not imply our endorsement of a Listing, or an Event. We do not evaluate review or warrant the Listing. If the Listing is posted, Users can view the Listing and contact Events directly (including by using functionality available through the Service) via the information provided in the Listing. HelloSponsor is not a party to and is not responsible for any discussions, promises, and agreements between Users initiated through the Service.

It is important to remember that HelloSponsor is a facilitator to enable Events to post Listings and Sponsors and Users to view possible Events, including as sponsorship opportunities. As a result, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the Listings, the truth or accuracy of the Listings, the ability of Events to produce and deliver the Listings, or the ability of Sponsors to enter into and fulfill the terms of any sponsorship. The Company does not endorse any User Submissions, including Listings. Our liability for any damages resulting from the Service or the Listings is limited pursuant to the terms and conditions in this Agreement. As either an Event or a Sponsor, you should exercise the same level of care and judgment that you would use when transacting for event sponsorships through traditional off-line means.

HelloSponsor reserves the right to reject, cancel, modify, remove, or suspend a Listing at any time and for any reason. HelloSponsor is not liable for any damages as a result of any of taking, or failing to take, any of those actions.

HelloSponsor is under no obligation to become involved in disputes between any Users, or between Users and any third party arising in connection with the use of the Service, with any Event or Sponsor. This includes, but is not limited to, delivery of goods and services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties, or representations associated with Listings on the Service. HelloSponsor does not guarantee or oversee the performance or punctuality of events listed through the Service. You release HelloSponsor, its officers, employees, agents, and successors in rights from claims, damages, and demands of every kind, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and the Service.

Events and Sponsors agree to not abuse other Users’ personal information. Abuse is defined as using personal information for any purpose other than those explicitly specified in a Listing, or is not related to fulfilling delivery of a product or service explicitly specified in the Listing.

Fees and Payments

Creating and viewing events on HelloSponsor is free of charge. However, we may charge fees for certain services. When you use a service that has a fee, you will have an opportunity to review and accept the fees that you will be charged, prior to being charged. If you elect to purchase a service offered by HelloSponsor, you will be asked by us or an authorized third party to supply certain information, including without limitation, your full name, address, telephone number and credit card information. You agree to provide us or such third party with the foregoing information as well as any other mandatory information. You agree that any such information provided shall be accurate, complete and current. By providing HelloSponsor with your credit card number and associated payment information, you agree that we and/or our third party service providers are authorized to immediately invoice your account for all fees and charges due and payable to us as a result of your order. Changes to fees are effective after we provide you with notice by posting the changes on the Site. You are responsible for paying all fees and taxes associated with your use of the Service.

Third-Party Sites and Services

The Service may permit you to link to other websites or resources on the internet, and other websites or resources may contain links to the Site. When you access third-party websites, you do so at your own risk. Those other websites are not under the Company’s control, and you acknowledge that the Company is not liable for the content, functions, accuracy, legality, appropriateness, or any other aspect of those other websites or resources. You further acknowledge and agree that the Company shall not be liable for any damage related to the use of any content, goods, or services available through any third-party website or resource. The inclusion on another website of any link to the Site does not imply endorsement by or affiliation with the Company.

Some portions of the Service implement Google Maps/Earth mapping services, including Google Maps API(s). Your use of Google Maps/Earth is subject to Google’s terms of use, located at, http://www.google.com/intl/en_us/help/terms_maps.html.
